Let the beat be Latino
A regular on the Parisian jazz circuit, Argentine musician Minino Gray is a percussionist par excellence. Garay's music invokes the spirit of Buenos Aires, the city of good winds and Paris, the city of lights. He wields the bombo and the cajun, a Peruvian percussion adopted by flamenco, with equal elan. Expect a heady mix of jazz, tango, cante Jondo and groovy blue.

Move over Farmville
Move over feeding wriggling pixels and trading stocks on virtual farms, bird-slinging and pig-squashing are the latest entertainers. We're talking about Angry Birds, the most downloaded iStore app of the year. The mission is to help the birds avenge the 'evil' hogs for having stolen their eggs.
Sling the birds to topple the facades housing the green felons. The only problem we think would be for you is to either buy or steal an iPhone or an iPad to play this game. Or just hope that our hacking brothers will soon crack it open.
That rare music
The Ska Vengers are the only Delhi-based ensemble bent on Ska music - a sort of quick-tempo reggae that emerged in the late 1950s. Some British-punk gods of the 1970s paid tribute to it, but nothing much has been heard of it since.
Enter Stefan Kaye, Miss Samara C. and Delhi Sultanate on vocals, Raghav Dang on guitar, Tony Guinard on bass and Nikhil Vasudevan on drums - with a bunch of guest musicians. Here's a rare chance to foot-tap to this rare musical form.
